Senator Mitch McConnell post meme image mocking failure of Gun Safety Background checks legislation

We're going to go out on a limb and say that Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky is the most disgusting, vile and immoral Senator elected in the chamber frequency known as "world's greatest deliberative body". McConnell took to his "Facebook" page to post a meme that literally mocked the failure of gun background checks and control legislation in the Senate.

The meme photos are meant to mimic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) asking how much gun control he can have. An adjoining photo shows McConnell holding up a zero sign, messaging, "You can have this much gun control." 

A message written under the photo, one has to assume was written by Mitch McConnell states, "We love the memes you send us! Keep them coming!", despite the pleases of family members of the elementary school massacre in Newtown, CT, who lobbied Republican and Democratic Senators to vote for the gun background check portion of the bill last week.

Replies ranging from horror to shock reactions were left on McConnell's Facebook page.

"You should be ashamed of yourself. You don't represent real Americans, you teahadist wannabe panderer," wrote David Sniffin.

"April 17 2013 will go down as a shameful day in American history. A day when members of the elected government ignored their citizens and exposed once again that big business dictates the political direction and that these senators did not vote with their conscience", Tony Webb replied.

We should all take note of how each individual voted and expose these people for the puppets they are", he opined. 

"Many states limit voting rights to convicted felons but we can't run background checks to make sure guns aren't going into their hands. Same party that screams no background checks for guns wants background checks for voting. I am a registered gun owner and I support gun regulation", said Facebook user Tracy Ann James.

"I also support making it an indictable crime to leave loaded guns in the reach of minors. Maybe making the crime indictable will limit the careless parents from leaving them within reach like we recently saw in NJ when a 4 year old shot a 6 year old to death. There is nothing funny about this issue, regardless what side you are on," she wrote.

President Barack Obama after the vote tuning down reasonable gun safety background check legislation on Wednesday, held a outside the White House press briefing, describing what occurred in the Senate as a "Shameful day for Washington".

Supporters of Gun Safety Background Check and Gun control legislation have vowed not to give up the fight and plan to continue actions including lending monetary support to primary challengers of Senators up for election in 2014 like Mitch McConnell, who voted against the bill.
